210 Pounds, 0 Pages, and Counting.....

In case you missed the news today, Justice Stevens is retiring from the Supreme Court, Rep. Stupak is not seeking re-election, Tiger Woods is two strokes off the lead at the Masters, and Ben Roethlisberger will likely not be charged with sexual assault in the Georgia incident (we'll find out for sure on Monday).  Like they say, money talks and sh*t walks.  Not that I know anything.

This just in.......I'm still fat.

Yep, got out of bed this morning, looked down, and still can't see my feet.  There could be miniature Martians in residence between my toes and I wouldn't know it.  : : : sigh : : :

I know I promised that this blog would be about everything but the kitchen sink, but I'll just warn you right now that you're going to see a lot about weight and writing.  Why?  Because my self-discipline isn't working like it used to.  I'm over 50 and no one's the boss of me!  Including me.  So a couple of days ago, I said to myself, "Self?  How can you lose weight and when are you ever gonna write that book?  What you need here is some accountability!"

What I need is a big ol' Snickers bar and a Diet Pepsi followed by a Cheetos chaser.  And George Clooney and Kate Beckinsale to take turns feeding it all to me.  Oh wait, that's the dream I had last night.....

So, I thought, well, there's no more accountability than putting your mouth and your plan out there where people can read it and then call you on it.  HEY, GET THAT CUPCAKE OUT OF YOUR MOUTH AND WRITE THE BOOK ALREADY!!!!  See what I mean?

As the title of this post says, I'm dragging around 210 pounds, I've written 0 pages.  I need some place to keep tabs on my efforts to drop the flab and my research/writing for the book.  Can't do much better than a blog.  Come back for the next post and I'll tell you more about the book.  Betcha can't wait, huh?  (Yep, I'm delusional, too!)


  1. START WRITING YOU BOOK!! You can do it, I know that you can! :^)
    I don't understand what the "comment as:" really means...I'm kind of dumb about all that.


  2. Debby, I agree with Sheri, you should start writing your book. She is right, you can do it.

    Your blog is informative and funny and I love it. Keep it up my friend.

    Hope you had a great weekend.
